"I say to the unmarried and to widows: It is good for them if they remain as I am. But if they do not have self-control, they should marry, since it is better to marry than to burn with desire." 1 Corinthians 7:8,9 (CSB). The Scriptures give man free choice regarding the decision to marry. [...]
In Titus 2:5, the Bible teaches that wives should obey their husbands. But how or why should a woman obey when her husband is not acting like a good Christian spouse and father?
1 Peter 3:1-2 (NASB), “In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.” Submissive is Strong’s Greek word #5293 [...]
Before I accepted Christ, I fathered a child. My church says I cannot partake of the Lord’s supper until I marry my woman. But I have financial problems. What should I do?
As the father of a child, it is your financial and moral responsibility to provide for your little one. A father sacrifices himself for the welfare of his child. Sometimes it is necessary to work two jobs; sometimes the father eats oatmeal in order to supply nutritious food for his child. When the family needs [...]
Putting God first in marriage rests upon the relationship each person, individually, has with God. A true Christian has given his life and his will over to God to serve Him. As Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me,” Matthew 16:24. In [...]

My husband and I have been separated for 10 plus years and also have not spoken for all that time. Is it alright in God’s eyes if I divorce him and find a new man?
This is such a painful experience. When a married couple cannot even talk, there are deep wounds, anger, and sorrows for both people. Sadly, there are many reasons marriages fall apart: adultery, drinking, gambling, domestic violence, bitterness, the occult, etc. Sin is a part of our fallen nature and a strong, deceptive influence from this [...]
Moses’ first wife was a Black woman. When Miriam and Aaron spoke poorly of the marriage, God became very angry with them. Numbers 12:1-15, “And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman…(God responded) ‘Why then were you not afraid to speak against [...]
I have lived with a man for 10 years. Now I feel called to study the ministry. If I want to follow God’s law, should we stop sleeping together?
"Be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord." Isaiah 52:11. The divine method seems to be to make a clear separation between the servants of God and the servants of the world. The privilege of testifying for God or being ambassadors for the Truth is a favor reserved for the Lord's own people. [...]
Leviticus 18:1-19 (NIV): “The LORD said to Moses, ‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them…You must not do as they do in Egypt…You must obey my laws and be careful to follow my decrees. I am the LORD your God…’ ‘No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the LORD. [...]
Marriage and divorce in the Bible The union of two people in marriage forms one body, which, like in nature, does not cease until death. “The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; [...]
I do not ask God why. Why God does things is beyond our comprehension. In the book of Job, Job's three friends tried to give Job reasons for his suffering, but God was displeased with all of their answers. In Job 38:2-4(NLT) God said, “Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words? Brace yourself [...]
